RH FACTORS

Rhesus-factor3

 

 

Question corner:

Even when both the parents are Rh positive, children born to them can be Rh negative. How does this  happen?

 

Rh typing is one among the 30 different blood grouping system currently in use.  In this grouping human beings are differentiated as Rh positive and Rh negative based on the presence or absence of an antigen (a type of protein).  Here Rh refers to the fact that it was first found in Rhesus monkeys.

 

This type of blood grouping was discovered by Karl Landsteiner and Alexander Wiener after 40 years of discovery of ABO blood grouping. Rh typing is genetically most complex blood typing system than others.

 

Like other traits, Rh factors are under the control of genes and it follows a common pattern of genetic inheritance.

 

Offspring receive a copy of gene from their parents, so that they are having a pair of genes for Rh factors.  Since Rh positive (Rh+) gene is dominant over Rh negative (Rh-), a single Rh positive gene (i.e. Rh+Rh-) is enough to express its trait.

 

 

rhfactor-300x226

In the case of Rh negative which is recessive, to express the character both genes must be negative (Rh-Rh-).

 

The genotype of Rh positive person may be have Rh+Rh+ (homozygous) or Rh+Rh- (heterozygous) genotype and it is Rh-Rh-(Homozygous) in negative persons.

 

Homozygous Rh positive (Rh+Rh-) produce games with only Rh- genotype .  Union of these gametes Rh+ and Rh- produces an offspring with Rh+Rh- genotype which is positive.

 

But Rh positive heterozygous parent (Rh+Rh-) produces two different types of gametes i.e. Rh+and Rh-.   Fusion of these gametes (Rh+or Rh-)with Rh- negative parent genotype gives two possible combinations: Rh+Rh- (Rh positive) and Rh-Rh-(Rh negative).

 

While both parents are heterozygous (Rh+Rh-) they produce Rh+ and Rh- gametes.  The union of Rh- gamete from father and Rh-gamete from mother results in Rh negative child.   The other possible combination are homozygous and heterozygous Rh positive children.

WHY HEALTH COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT

 

119_1950

 

 

A  widely prevalent but deeply flawed belief is that the poor and vulnerable do not care about their health and well -being.  This results in poor health seeking behaviour and increased vulnerability to disease. Contrary to this belief, poor or at risk populations are actually deeply invested in their health.  Across the world, they  bear the larger burden of disease and continuously look for new ways to improve well being.  Not just that – they also absorb and value health information that is relevant to them.  This, however, is contingent on how effectively this information is communicated to them.

Small experiments across the world revel that the vulnerable populations absorb health information well if it is relevant, localised, integrates well with current cultural and social situations and is entertaining (hardly surprising).  Research also reveals that health communication is neither delivered nor received in a vacuum.

The audience, their values, aspirations, lifestyles and environment impact the communication process.  The environment i.e political, social and economic conditions influence reception and interpretation of messages.

What does this mean? That vulnerable populations like any other audience demand effort and understanding.  They are discriminating consumers of information and easily bored with long winded , didactic and boring messages.  They demand, like all consumers, that the message connects with them and only then will they connect with the message.

However, policy makers and program planners rarely view engaging the most vulnerable creatively on issues of prevention and health seeking behaviour as a priority.  This negligence to health communication is the result of overly medicalised approaches to health where the focus is to treat the patient but not to prevent the disease.   The underlying assumption is that the individual is incapable of health seeking behaviou. Thus, the patient is at the receiving end of choices made about their health by  a group of doctors.

Disinterest among public health officials about health  communication is not the only reason for deprioritised or poor health communication . These activities are supervised not by  communication professionals but by doctors who understand and know nothing of health communication. These doctors are often at a loss with no training on the subject.   As a result, these activities are at best unimaginative , instructive and unengaging with little or no impact.

Moreover, health messaging is viewed as a soft aspect of public health programming.  ‘Read’ doctors are reluctant to do health communications.

Public health authorities need to understand that if we expect people to change lifestyle choices, we need to engage them with health messages that are persuasive.  Clearly, this is a job for communication professionals not doctors.

In India, two examples of successful health communication that had considerable impact are polio and HIV. In either case, a host of a agencies worked together to develop a multi-prolonged strategy led by communication professionals.   This helped in creating multiple strategies that were used to engage diverse audiences.

Polio messaging for example was built on simple idea- two drops that could save your child’s life.  This message was everywhere- from print, TV and radio from the more urban and semi-urban audiences and on roadsides, on the back of buses and lorries and in small village fairs.

HIV was perhaps India”s most complex disease communication excercise.  In a society with ingrained double standards, limited women’s rights and a complete lack of conversation on sexuality and sexual diversity talking about HIV may have been impossible. However, HIV program manager within the government understood the importance of prevention and sought help from external agencies creating what was perhaps the most elaborate and effective health communication campaign in recent history.

The HIV campaign used every possible medium and celebrities to transmit messagees o prevention, on treatment and on stigma.  An important aspect of this campaign was it consciously focused on being entertaining and connecting with the audience.  It also conciously   avoided being judgmental of lifestyle choices. HIV programming in particular was relevant as it emphasized the notion of choice – an idea that was empowering to an audience used to directive messaging.

Public health authorities across high-burden countries need to reorder their approach to public health communication,.  For starters, this communication needs to be managed by communication professionals  and not doctors. Public health communication must be multi-prolonged , regionally suitable and easy too absorb.  Finally, public health authorities need to take up public health communications as a priority.

THE VAGINA MONOLOGUE

THE VAGINA MONOLOGUE

 

Whatever writes in English will not harm to writers – But if it is in regional language like Tamil and others it will be a sin to the writers- an open statement and excerpts from an interesting subject.

 

In a society where self-worth is increasingly equated with sexual attractiveness, there are plenty of products that target both men and women. So why whine about the 18 Again ad?

 

A hilarious sketch of a woman on a beach with a strip of cloth coyly covering her nose instead of her ‘vitals’ it was funny but it was also a commentary on how society lays down certain norms and demands a certain set of reactions from its members.  And it might explain why the reactions against recent advertisements for a vagina tightening gel called 18 Again have been so severe.

 

Significantly, it’s not as if vagina tightening creams and gels are radically new. They have been out there in dozens long before 18 Again. In fact, I would be surprised if our ancient healers have not been peddling some herbal version of it for centuries now.  The only difference is that this gel is being hyped openly on TV in the bold, new India.

 

Why the Outrage?

  Is it because the vagina is central to female sexuality that the gel has evoked such wrath even as  nose jobs, breast implants, or waistline reductions have cosily been accepted as an excessive but acceptable norm?  We might write in derisive tones of a starlet who plumps her lips or fits in a silicone implant but we don’t go ballistic claiming feminist outrage.

 

The anti-gel criticisms have a familiar ring, sounding similar to those against other purely cosmetic surgeries and products, as practices demanded and encouraged by the male gaze.  However, the gel does not promise any readily visible cosmetic improvement and that somewhat reduces the power of this argument.  It has been argued that the product is designed exclusively for male satisfaction but pelvic strength addresses female sexual satisfaction as much.

 

A strong criticism is that the product targets female sexual performance and makes her feel inadequate.  But why should we claim that a product that addresses a feminine sexual performance parameter is any worse or more deplorable than the innumerable products that address the male?  The gel is of a piece with the innumerable penis enlargement creams, the male deodorants that promise to make effete wimps into objects of desire, and the performance enhancement products that guarantee to keep male libido at 18 till they die.

 

In the Viagra generation, male performance anxiety is being preyed on relentlessly by marketers and with the same ruthlessness with which female insecurities are being exploited.  In both cases, the insecurities are often created and magnified by the marketers themselves.

If we must object, it must be to the culture we have created and inhabit today.  We live in a world where physical perfection and attractiveness (physical and sexual) have never been more saleable commodities.  And that bolds true for both genders.  Economist Daniel Hamermesh finds that a handsome man can make at least 250,000 dollars more than a less attractive colleague.  One study in the U.S found that taller men earned around 600 dollar per inch more than their shorter counterparts.  A Newsweek 2010 survey reported that good looks ranked third, just after confidence and experience, on a list of most crucial employee attributes. 

 

Most important, this grail of physical flawlessness is no longer the sole pursuit of the rich.  Everything from mole removal to straighter teeth to thinner thighs is just a middle-class price-tag away.   Unfortunately, therefore, when every magazine cover is graced by that perfect body, nobody is asking how much it was air-brushed; they are busy asking how cheaply they can get the skateboard abs.

 

And it’s not just about a beauty-obsessed society demanding impossible busts and six-packs.  It’s also about an increasingly sexualized society setting impossible erotic standards and flourishing in the casual and thoughtless mainstreaming of pornography.  A steady stream of easily accessible images is pushing men and women to aspire to impossible levels of physical perfection and performance in a bizarre race towards a TV-Internet-porn film inspired ideal.

 

The vaginal tightening gel is just another box on the ever-expanding shelf of this hyper-sexualised society.  People today have been primed to buy anything that promises to make them thinner, taller, sexier.

 

“Your self-worth is dependent on the amount of sexual attractiveness you have to the outside world”.

 

A complex conspiracy of cultural forces, rapid scientific advances, and economic prosperity is putting an ever-impossible sexual and aesthetic image just within tantalizing reach.  A sagging chin lifted, a wart zapped away, a penis perfected. And a pelvic muscle tightened.

 

Is this inexorable drive towards perfection desirable?  Of course not.  But it cannot be wished away either.  Not in an age that’s busy working on blemish-free bananas and designer babies.  That’s why it’s difficult to understand rants about one product singled out from a gamut of products that are morally and ethically on a similar ambiguous plane.

 

IDEALISTIC EXPECTATION: The objectors seem to hope that somehow manufacturers and marketers will show restraint and self-regulation when it comes to perpetuating these perfection myths.  But as otherwise happy participants in an eminently consumption- driven economy, it’s foolishly idealistic to expect that marketers will place responsibility over profits.  Which means it’s up to buyers to display good, old-fashioned common sense to filter those marketing messages.  Caveat emptor, remember?

So by all means let’s question the efficacy of the gel. Just as a cream cannot melt away tummy fat (it needs hours of annoying exercise to do it), can any gel do for pelvic muscles what good old Kegel exercises can? Let’s ask if a tummy tuck poses a health hazard.  It makes more sense to see if the products promising miracles are guilty of misrepresentation and culpable under the MRTP Act than to whine about their political correctness.

 

We could, of course, question the incredible tackiness of the TV ad that, flogs this new gel and its total absence of good taste and aesthetics, But that would be another column altogether.

LEADS TO WRONG CULTURE

LEADS TO WRONG CULTURE

 

Not married an own brother; but married her brother he is 6 months younger than her; both are under 19years. She is 18 years and six month old he is 18 only. Both are educated up to some extend. She is doing final year of under graduation. He is just now finished his Diploma studies. This is not a story or fiction, but real. This incident sorry accident happened in our local area. It is not Indian way of life or Hindu religious habit and custom.

 

Though both are belongs to same Forward Caste and relationship as one family roots. Her parents having one son and her only as children. She is elder Sister’s daughter and he (bridegroom) is younger sister’s son. In India they are also called as brother and sister only and behave like that only. I don’t know how in western culture they consider it. Half-brother, co-brother and co-sister or cousin.

 

In western culture it may happened or not I really confused about it. But in Muslim Religion they are marrying each other.

 

One day Mr.M, he is the father of that young lady or bride called on me and immediately asked me to accompany with him to police station to write a letter to detach her with his family. But without knowing anything about this matter I neglected. Later after many days while he is meeting me occasionally he described about that entire incident.

 

On that very first day of college final year graduation she eloped and absconded, we don’t know where about. So; Mr.M, complained to Police station to find her. While he is describing about it; Local political panchayat   chairman made a call to reach the office to solve the matter amicably. Bridegroom’s relations are belongs to same party so; the local panchayat chairman took necessary steps to finalize the matter as quick as possible.

 

One long week the parents wandering head to post, here and there to police station and home. After three days couples arrived. Already they went up to Thirumala Thiruppathi to marry each other. Both are brother and elder sister as per Hindu and Tamil culture. Daughter of Mr.M without any fear in that police station itself announced stubbornly that she want to marry only that related younger boy. Both are willing to do it. They are major as per age.

 

So; everything over. Without doing any action political VIPs, parenthood relations, even police personals couldn’t do anything against them. It is the wrong example of the Indian culture. Now everything changes in negative way in our nation. In Assam – huagati in the forest area Army persons raped a village girl. They are our guardians as per our Govt. They used to guard our safety but they are doing this means where culture goes we must ashamed of that deed. Guarding land and boundary means that they should safeguard our people that are the meaning in it. But here the meaning is differs. They are taking upperhand because of their employment and secuirity they are torturing the public means what to say? Where to say? If we bring these kind of matter to upper level it is bound by military rule only they bounded, If we start to preach the public about the illness of liquor everybody nook and corner all drunkards are trying to curse us and ready to attack us because our Govts. are fully supported to them to make revenue in this matter. cell phone entrance  and modernization of scientific and western culture into Indian mainstream are the main reason and cause of these kind of incidents. Parents feels like that. It is not the opinion of the Author.If their children came to know all about that means what is the value of the parents in front of their children? And how can grow their children with positive effects on the society and relationship.?

 

Smoking is injurious to health

Liquor consumption spoils family

Decaying culture eradicate the discipline in the society. These are all the moral words we keep that words only for the word sake. But Day by day our civilized society is goes to the same old barbarian routes in backwards and roots as centre of attraction is mother or lady she can having relationship with anybody even with her own children to breed the humanity.’ is it sin? We don’t know but it spoils all relationships and creates wrong relationships in human being with chaos.
